You should also be focussed on what you will be doing. I encourage you to be determined because determination is what got me here today.

7. Tell Us A Story Of One Of Your Adventures While Pursuing This Dive (At This Level).
Even one of my teachers marvelled at my commitment on this particular dive. He started making me give speeches at assembly despite me speaking what was known as broken English at that time and all the kids below me would laugh at how I spoke English but I was too in love to care about them hence I continued.
One day my teacher and I were called to the headmaster’s office as news heard it that the headmaster was not pleased about such a student talking on assembly. But when we got to the office it was another story. He was in fact pleased that my teacher had come up with such an idea as many students had started taking their English more seriously. On prize giving day I was actually awarded with the most motivating student of the year award. In the following year I was also awarded with the most improved as I passed my final examinations as indicated in my certificate.
So I guess for me that was my adventure because English really taught me a lot. I even got a one on one talk with my headmaster, the man who got everyone on his toes not forgetting that we even shook hands. That was a great ordeal for me.
